Senior Matt Ortega's (Adam David) original idea was to edit personal home footage for a media class project, so that he could create a tribute video in memory of his girlfriend Jessie (Valentina de Angelis). The year prior, Jessie dropped out of Ridge Crest H.S. in Colorado and ran off to L.A. with dreams in her heart. Six months later, her nude body was found strewn along Topanga Canyon; she had been strangled and beaten. Months passed, and with no clues or witnesses, law enforcement interest begins to wane. So Matt creates an Internet blog that invites readers to share any information that they might have about the murder. Within two weeks after the sites’ launching, a plain paper packet containing a Mini DV arrives at Matt's home that shows Jessie being murdered. The packet also contains cryptic data that may reveal the identity of the killer. Distrustful of the legal system, Matt decides to circumvent the police and decides to drive back to Los Angeles alone as he documents the process of confronting Jessie's murderer.
